Publisher's Description

Virtually all of us have a family member or friend who has been diagnosed with cancer. But do we really know how to help? Reflecting on her own journey with cancer, June Hunt offers "practical, yet overlooked ideas" to help caregivers walk through the journey with those they love. Caring for a Loved One with Cancer begins with the first doctor’s visit and moves through nearly fifty short, single-topic chapters with practical application. These include offering to communicate progress and needs, keeping a record of remembrances, making a chart for medication, fixing food that helps with healing, and others. 

Additional chapters cover tips for helping children through confusion, dealing with issues related to cancer treatment, discovering important "don’ts," and what cancer cannot do. Specifically written for those caring for loved ones battling cancer, this book can also be used by those coming alongside anyone suffering from a debilitating illness.

In Caring for a Loved One with Cancer, inspirational speaker June Hunt shares insights from her own experience with battling cancer, as well as her experiences encouraging friends as they battled cancer. Divided into two parts, Caring for a Loved One with Cancer provides over 50 tips for the friend or caregiver of a person dealing with cancer. Tips range from giving gifts to accompanying friends to doctor appointments to making sure your friend takes all their pills.

Hunt provides an especially useful chapter on confronting your sick friends about their spiritual beliefs and starting them on the path to salvation. She also includes technical explanations of what causes cancer, how it affects the body, and how to take care of yourself if you have cancer. The second part of the book need not be separated from the first part; it all blends together well. Chapters range from one to two pages long, making for a quick and easy read. Much of the book reads as a narrative of Hunt’s own journey, which will make the book more interesting to those who may not be dealing with cancer or caring for someone with cancer.

Several of the chapters include Scripture passages that encourage the cancer patient – "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand" (Isaiah 41:10), and admonish friends of cancer patients to "encourage one another daily" (Hebrews 3:13).

While many of the tips in the book may seem obvious, Caring for a Loved One with Cancer serves as an encouraging reminder of just how important true friendship is in the midst of trials and heartache. Anyone dealing with cancer or with the fact that a loved one has cancer will benefit from reading Hunt’s words. – Harmony Wheeler, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
